We planted an espalier howgate wonder apple, and a double cordon pear, last march, and removed all the blossom last year- loads on the apple, 1 flower on the pear. This year the pear had loads of blossom, of which I removed around a third, but only one pear has set. Any tips?
The howgate wonder apple has no blossom this year, but is otherwise healthy apart from some leaf miner moth damage. Is this an every other year tree?
Thanks, I'm very much new to fruit trees!
